Im pretty sure everyone is taking this woodsball thing far to serious. The woods just happen to be where we play because there is no where else to go. The underlying passion comes from the freedom of professional fields and their gestapo rules. And, of course, from all the friendly antics as well. As the man said, "Over 90% of players play paintball in the woods", so its not like any of us are special. The only reason why speedball is in the limelight is because of the political nature of speedball. Compared to playing in the woods, speedball is a gold mine because of all the money sunk into the high tech equipment and cases of rounds shot each game. And its for that reason why sponsors make sure speedball is on tv and played at all fields. So stop trying to turn "woodsball" into the rebellion against the speedball empire because its all a matter of people just trying to make a buck.
Its funny how around 6 years after you said this, its all reversed. shoot, you yourself probably aren't even here or still play. Locally here, its hard to find anyone on the speedball fields, who can afford to shoot three cases of paint a day? Mommy and daddy don't have the money for it anymore. College kids sure can't afford it and usually stop playing period. The lowly woodsballer is now the focus of the industry and they are trying to sell us every stupid little thing they can and promise us that its "tactical".
